Peppermint Candy Cake


PEPPERMINT CANDY CAKE

2 layers white cake (mix)
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
½ tsp peppermint extract
1 cup crushed peppermint candies
white frosting (store bought)

To make peppermint filling, melt butter in small saucepan. Add sugar, milk and extract. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. While cake layers are still warm, prick tops with a toothpick. Place 1 layer on cake plate and pour 1/2 of peppermint filling slowly over layer. Sprinkle with ¼ cup of peppermint candy. Repeat with remaining layer, but don’t sprinkle top layer with candy. Frost top and sides with frosting, then sprinkle top and sides with remaining ½ cup peppermint candy.
